Tiny house cat sizes up lion in viral video

You’re as big as you feel, right?

If that’s not your mantra, maybe take some inspiration from Baggy the house cat, who recently challenged a lion.

A lion.

As in, King of the Jungle.

Baggy took a trip outdoors and found herself face to face with a lion named Noey. Owner Derek Krahn, the operations director at a big cat sanctuary in Texas, filmed the half-sweet, half-scary encounter and provided some lighthearted commentary.

Krahn uploaded the cat vs. bigger cat video to his YouTube channel.

Little Baggy lurches at Noey multiple times as Krahn expresses his disbelief in the house cat’s bravery.

“Baggy, abort!” he cries, all in good fun. “There’s nothing to be gained, Baggy!”

One can only imagine how different the situation would have turned out, had there not been a cage wall separating the two felines.

Krahn writes in the video’s description that Baggy “has always been a tough little cookie, but I never thought she was this degree of crazy.”
